Gabriel Lippmann Public Research Center

Public institution in Luxembourg uses Hyland's Nuxeo Platform to provide a secure extranet for external stakeholders.

The Gabriel Lippmann Public Research Center is a public institution whose missions are applied scientific research, technological development and transfer, and high-level continuing education. Its activities aim to strengthen the Luxembourg economy through the creation of new technological skills and the transfer of know-how to enterprises.

A connected document management solution

The Gabriel Lippmann Public Research Center wanted to provide members of its board of directors an extranet for access to and sharing of documents, with strict confidentiality requirements and, ultimately, data encryption.

The document management solution sought by Gabriel Lippmann PRC had to integrate with its web applications, including its web content management solution, TYPO3, via the CMIS protocol.

Well aware of the benefits of open-source software, the research center narrowed its list of potential document management solutions. Hyland's Nuxeo Platform was chosen for its ease of installation, use and integration, and because of its high marks for performance.

A real-world test before production

After a technical benchmark, the Nuxeo Platform was made available to board members to assess the ease of use and to generate buy-in for the software choice. They were able to use the tool before final validation from the CIO.

A team of two put the extranet application in production after an integration that took less than a month and a half. All of the board's office documents are now managed in Nuxeo Platform and accessible from the extranet, via TYPO3. In terms of both functional and technical requirements, the platform meets and exceeds the expectations of the Gabriel Lippmann PRC's IT team.

For us, Nuxeo Platform is an engine that integrates with our information systems, providing document management functionality across multiple web applications.

New features on the way

To meet the specific requirements of the Gabriel Lippmann PRC, Nuxeo Platform will develop a feature to encrypt documents in order to enhance the confidentiality of the solution. Similarly, the feature enabling document search through CMIS is being improved to scale the document management solution for wider use.

Next steps

The Gabriel Lippmann PRC has plans to use Nuxeo Platform's workflow engine in the near future. There are also plans to use Nuxeo as the opening it to all employees. Eventually, the Nuxeo solution will be opened to external partners as well.
